Dark Souls has the reputation of being an unforgiving game, with multiple deaths being inevitable during gameplay, and after a successful turn on the console market, the game is making its way to the PC with the "Prepare to Die" edition. While there's already been a trailer for the game, Namco Bandai wasn't going to allow E3 to go without giving potential consumers even more reason to want the game.
To do so, the publisher has released a gameplay trailer, giving those who haven't played an idea of what they can expect:
Over at PrepareToDie.com, there's a list of what the "Prepare to Die" edition will contain:
New Bosses - Including Artorias of Abyss, Chimera of Tomb, and more PVP Online Matchmaking System - Quick matching for co-op or PVP New Areas – Including Oolacile Tomb, Old Ruins and more New Enemies – Including Abyss Guard, Chained Prisoner and more New NPCs – Including Hawkeye Gough and more New Weapons and Armor – Equip some from the new bosses, enemies, and NPCs
Not only is the expanded edition available for PC players, the extra content will also be available for console players, along with additional DLC called Artorias of the Abyss. According to a Namco Bandai press release, posted by GamersHell.com, Artorias of the Abyss will be available for the Xbox and the PS3 this winter, along with a retail version of the Prepare to Die edition.
